Are these 500 Ib bombs?
It seems to me that carpet bombing was carried out
extensively during the K.W.--not only on N.K. troop concentration sites but
also on cities, power plants, dams & other economic sites.
For instances, Air Force flew some 50 B-29s to bomb Pyongyang one night in 1952
and "several hundred planes" of Navy, Marine and Air Force demolished
four of N.K's huge hydro-electric power complexes on June 23-24, 1952,
including Suiho, the largest in the Orient and the world's fourth biggest.
(source: Pacific Stars & Stripes) There must be some truth to the allegation
that no building was left standing in Pyongyang when the Armistice
Agreement was signed.
Does anyone know how many times Pyongyang was bombed
during the K.W.?
